Democrat Candidate For Governor In West Virginia Won’t Support Hillary

The Dem nominee for Governor in West Virginia says he just can’t vote for #CrookedHillary. He’s upset after she said she would put coal workers “out of business.”

According to The Hill:

“The Democratic gubernatorial candidate in West Virginia said he cannot support fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton’s bid for president.

Jim Justice, a billionaire who owns multiple coal mines in the state, told a talk radio host Monday that Clinton’s environmental policies, and their effects on the coal industry, prevent him from supporting her.

“I cannot be a supporter of Hillary Clinton,” Justice said Monday on West Virginia MetroNews’s radio show “Talkline.”

“The reason I can’t be is her position on coal is diametrically, completely wrong in many, many different ways.”

Clinton attracted anger across West Virginia and other coal-dependent regions when she said in May that, under her presidency, “we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”
